    I'm thinking about moving from a Mac Pro with SSD. I'm not comfortable doing an SSD install on the iMac, so wondering how much of a drop off I'd experience going from an SSD to the iMac's hard drive.

    Thoughts?

    I moved my SSD to my iMac. It's not very hard - the biggest issue is leaving dust under the glass.

    What was your impression of the iMac, prior to your upgrade. I'm hesitant to do the upgrade initially, so would likely stick with the stock 2TB hard drive. Considering a move from Mac Pro/ 30" ACD to 27" iMac. SSD speed/quiet is only real sticking point for me.

    I never used the machine without the SSD. I would imagine it will be pretty speedy, but if you're already used to SSDs...
